7:19 am
degrees with partly cloudy skies. 35 degrees in fallon, 16 in eely and 8 degrees out in to elko this morning. chilly start again for the eastern side of the statement there's the clouds. we're looking at partly cloudy skies. good amount of cloud cover in the truckee meadows right now. more clouds would limit the temperatures once again like yesterday. less clouds or fewer and more in the way of sunshine will help us to reach some pretty warm temperatures lathe today. either way it's going to be well above the average for this time of the year. eastern side of the state less so. 30s and 40s. western side of the state 50s and 60s. for this time around we're looking at the lower 60s rather than the upper 60s. 50s around tahoe with light winds and a mix of sun and clouds again and western nevada again the low 60s for the lower elevations today like 62 in dayton, 61 in carson city.

50s and the lower 60s. about 60 degrees instead today and they would look for reno sparks. again that may not be the 67 or 68 that we were talking about for earlier in the week that it is cooler than that and well above average for this time of the year nonetheless as the average is 50 degrees for tomorrow's day in reno sparks. going for the lower 60s across the area. the mid-50s at south lake tahoe. we are still dry right through the weekend in to the beginning of next week. and very mild temperatures holding on. and i think that we will get a brief warm up on tuesday before the next storm system. this has been a while since we were able to say there's a storm system on your seven-day forecast and there it is. rain in the valleys and a little bit of cooler air mixing in by thursday. so i think that the upper elevations should start to change over for you as it moves closer over to you. >> bring on the rain. thank you, tim. still ahead, parents at the north carolina school district

welcome back. it is 8:14 on your friday morning. good morning to you. and high pressure is still in control of the weather the next couple of days here as a result of the inversion where they have been there the last several days, but not building up too much with it and that it will be good news there. going for the lower 60s today with a lot of cloud cover yesterday. limiting the temperatures that we were getting as they could
8:15 am
once again. not quite record breaking territories at this point, which will be about 67. we're going for 62 and 63 today. and as i mentioned that there will be a good amount for the sierra as well and now creeping in too once again for the day today. in to the 30s and the 40s for the highs today. in to the 50s and the 60s. in to the 50s there too and 50 in tahoe city. the light winds with a mix of sun and clouds and still very quiet for us going through most of the seven-day forecast.

8:17 am
overtime the tissues break down. then we're going to feel the symptoms of the injury. so instead of doing the old school set ups, where i would hold your feet. and you grab your head. let's show how we can do some exercise that will not hurt our back. >> okay, i will let you do it. and where you rest your shoulders. i'll pull down to my toes and up to my elbows, then make my stomach tight and make my butt tight. and that is making your stomach stronger without injurying your back. >> but hold on a second. some people will do the plank and they feel like that is stress in their lower back and they are like awe this hurts too bad that you're saying that it will be okay in >> we don't want them to feel stress. if you don't have the strength to do it from your toes, then we will do it from your knees. >> oh, okay. >> that will be less stressful. a bunch of other ways to modify
8:18 am
without hurting your back. >> that we can show you that. >> yeah, do you have any others to show you? >> sure. >> we will work you out there. >> yes, the reverse grudge. that's my back. i'll drive my knees up to the ceiling. then focus on from the ribs to my pelvic floor to make that as tight as you can. >> that is not an easy one. that is not easy. >> they are not putting your back in stress. >> another one, quickly you have about 30 seconds left. people love to do these that you will see right there, off your microphones. >> these are bad because right now i'm driving the humorous bone up to my shoulder as we all have shoulder injuries. at 50. and i will not ask how old you are. >> 21. >> but we know the research that people over 40, they have shoulder injuries. you might not feel the symptoms, this will create more symptoms. you want to work your triceps, we will hold this position and then that will keep your elbow, your shoulder from driving up in to those soft tissues. but yeah everybody is worried
8:19 am
don't do dips, do extensions or kickbacks. >> okay, and people having to do that? >> we can come over to sports west sportswestreno.com. >> thank you so much for being with us. >> you're welcome. >> ryan over to you. >> all right, melissa thank you. he's back on mornings on fox. spike mcguire from the band six mile station also performs a solo artist. that is exactly what's happening right now. spike, take it away. hi, i'm spike mcguire. a song about the places that i go in my sleep.

8:31 am
>> yeah with the raiders, they're looking desperately for a new home. the oakland coliseum is not the best place to go see a game, so yeah las vegas certainly in play, but oakland will be in oakland for at least one more year. >> it is crazy about the whole thing. los angeles didn't have a team last year and now there were talks actually about them having the rams. the chargers, and the raiders. like zero teams to three teams. >> having to tell one of them hey you can't come. it's exciting for people down in southern california. that's for sure after 20 plus years without a football team. >> that was wrong to begin with. all right. let's toss it over to meteorologist tim studebaker who has a beautiful valentine's day weekend for us. >> all right, good morning to you. warm temperatures across the seven-day forecast. and now moisture chances until we get to the other end of it with a storm on the way for the middle of next week. that will be on the seven-day forecast in a few minutes. we do have a good amount of
8:32 am
western nevada and that is exactly what happened yesterday with so much cloud cover in fact that there are temperatures that never made it to the forecast highs for the day. we ended up with a cooler day than what we were thinking because of those clouds. that could happen for a few spots today. we pulled out the highs for later today compared to what we were originally thinking for today's day-to-day in the up -- today's date in the upper 60s. no restriction on burning right now. 20s and 30s across western nevada and the sierra at the moment. as we head in to the afternoon temperatures, they're still going to be well above average, just not quite record territory anymore. low 60s verses the high 60s, which were the original thoughts for today. partly cloudy skies for western nevada and the sierra. those clouds are starting to creep up. that will be out there for the day today. partly cloudy skies with some haze in the valleys, very warm temperatures. coming up on your seven-day forecast an end is in sight. we will let you know when and

[ applause ] >> that is exciting stuff. the team of international astro physicists used an instrument to detect the gravitational wave from a very distant collision of two black holes. gravitational waves were first talked about by einstein in 1916 as a part of the generalrelativity therapy. now they will add a new dimension to the visible universe instead of just pictures. >> so cool. all right, well a local barbershop is bringing back an old tradition with a modern twist. >> how derby supply company may
